If the Euros want what Agassi gets, then Mosquito and Fed and some of the others better start showing some personality and winning the crowd over, then they'll get prime time playing, too.

ummmm........Agassi and Roddick are stars in America.......dont talk like their bigger stars then the Europeans/Oceania/Asian players all over the world.

I guess that's all good if you like only players from the States. I only like a handful of American players (Alex Bogomolov, Robby Ginepri, Brian Vahaly, Vince Spadea) but because they aren't "stars" I hardly ever seen them get TV coverage either. So a foreign player playing an American still doesn't guarantee fair coverage. Personally, I get sick of Agassi and Roddick being jammed down my throat even though I do like Andre. I understand coverage for the "casual fan" but what about the rest of us?

Exactly!! But I gave up on trying to tell that to some Tennis fans a long time ago. Some people just think that the sun rises and sets for Andre and Roddick .

Hmm...at their countries (as Agassi and Roddick are in this moment) SURE! They would have drawn a crowd like that one.

Just remember Spanish crowd at Davis Cup Final at 2000. Ferrero was the hero.

I'm glad that my post didn't come across to harsh . ESPN (and its commentators) puts me on edge so sometimes when I post how I feel I do it a bit too strongly. Even though I mean everything that I'm trying to say . I know that I should be happy to see Tennis at all but it's hard to be appreciative when NONE of your favorites are being shown for the sake of showing one or two players who may be playing a boring match .

I wish that I was one of the 5 people in the States who have the Tennis Channel...lol. I don't think my cable company will pick it up anytime soon .

But, with the 2 American players always played at night, it gives them the unfair advantage like yesterday, it's more taxing for Rainer and Coria than Moya and Andy playing 3 sets tennis. Just like in USO, all non-American players had to play 5 set tennis in 4 consecutive days (if they went all the way) while the Americans didn't.
